Video: Michigan State University Lansing Town Tour

Sometimes you can't go on campus visits--but someone else can for you! Watch student Daniel tour the campus of Michigan State University in this video.

When narrowing down which college to attend, it’s important to consider the campus environment and surrounding community. But it's not always possible to go on campus visits yourself. Have no fear! Student vlogger Daniel Isabella is here to give a tour of the East Lansing area surrounding Michigan State University. It may be only one school, but the tour can give you an idea of what it's like to attend a school in a college town. Check out the video below!

Two key places to visit you wouldn’t expect on a college tour

In order to get a really good idea of what a college is like, you have to hit both some of its highlights that everyone recommends and its unexpected locations. We all know a lot of the places to look for on a normal tour, but have you thought about exploring the nearby town? Here’s where Daniel brought us on his tour! 

  • The Lansing Area: Remember, as much as academics are crucial to the college experience, you should also branch out to the surrounding town. When you attend a college, you’ll inevitably want to get off campus every now and again for some fun with friends. Looking for a college with an interesting and easily accessible city or populated area is important. For instance, the Lansing Area, according to Daniel, is a college town at heart with campuses for other colleges nearby.
  • Seek out your interests: Daniel tells watchers that the most important places to seek out are the places on and off campus that align with your interests. Daniel is a theater lover so being near the Wharton Center of Performing Arts has allowed him to get a hands-on experience with a subject he is passionate about. 

This quick tour of East Lansing, Michigan gave us a great idea of the kind of fun and atmosphere students are exposed to at Michigan State University. So whether you’re going on campus visits or not, remember to find a way to explore and learn about the surrounding area of the colleges you’re interested in.
